Astralis reclaim No.1 ranking spot

Astralis returned to the top of the world rankings in the latest weekly update, released Monday.

The Danish side ended Liquid's four-month stay at the summit after impressing upon their return from the player break. They won the StarLadder Major - ending a dry spell that spanned over five months - and made deep runs at ESL One New York and DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 in their first three tournaments of the season.

After establishing a dominant run with six consecutive Big Event victories, Liquid have hit a rough patch of form of late. Results have dried up for the North American side, who placed 5th-8th at the Major, 3rd-4th in New York and 9th-12th in Malmö - the first time this year that they failed to reach the playoffs of a Big Event.

Astralis moved past Liquid for the top spot in the rankings

Liquid's recent results see them take just 69 points in the "form" column in the rankings - the lowest of any team currently in the top 5. Still, they are only trailing Astralis by 75 points and will be looking to take the mantle from the Danes at their next Big Event, BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen, scheduled for November 1-2.

The race for the title of world No.1 is wide open, but it is worth mentioning that Liquid lost a chunk of their points due to ESL One Cologne dropping off the list of tournaments held in the last three months. With the North Americans' victories at BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and IEM Chicago also about to expire, the gap could become even wider by the time the two teams meet again in the Danish capital.

Before that, the two high-fliers will take part in the first stage of ESL Pro League Season 10. Astralis will face fnatic, North and Aristocracy, while Liquid will go up against Renegades and two as-yet-undetermined opponents

no surprise, but EG still beat astralis in a bo5 so EG >>>>>>

They did show a pretty great form to win that tournament. We'll have to see if they can maintain that form.
2019-10-07 19:45
I don’t feel like they should be fourth, vitality should be fourth and fnatic 5th. And g2 dropping 4 spots, that’s a bit rough.
2019-10-07 20:21
G2 lost 2 people, that's why they lost many spots
2019-10-07 21:01
Still a core three, I feel like it’s still a bit steep to deduct that many points.

They get a lot of form points and then they also get points from a big event win
2019-10-07 21:14
To jump from 28th to 4th with last notable tournament being the minor, I don’t know if it’s really that many points though. I get that winning and beating higher ranked teams help but from 19th sept to now gaining 504 points for 1 tournament and a few online maps.
2019-10-08 00:17
It's because of the teams in attendance. It was most of the top ten and they won beating a few of those teams in a bo3. Sure, putting them at fourth is kinda a stretch but it's understandable.

2019-10-07 19:14
No fluke, jet lag
2019-10-07 19:54
Astralis had the sane circumstances as EG and they made it to semis?

How is that and advantage to Astralis ? EG can do the same haha. wouldnt have done any difference dude just stop u lost

Exactly they should be proud of taking down the kings of counter strike for a few months. I do not think Stew is the problem at this time In my opinion, I think they have their heads swollen after the win of IGL S2. GG to Astralis and hopefully we have Team Liquid as they were before the summer break.

2019-10-07 19:32
Yeah lets just ignore all of 2018 that shows what they're capable of, or how they've been reclaiming their form recently, you're right. Putting our fingers in our ears and ignoring facts is the best way to go about things, lets look at numbers instead.
2019-10-07 19:35
So what you are saying, is that you should have said "...Astralis was so good and dominant."

"Aside from the Majors" ... You can ask any pro player, any coach, any caster or desk how they feel about a Major compared to the rest. You are of course welcome to think and decide whatever you want in your own universe ... utterly unique inside your head!
2019-10-07 22:47
They won the grand slam plus lots of events so a total of like $2M and the major is $500k Many events + Grand Slam > Major but Major > Tier 1 event
2019-10-07 23:09
Liquid would swap their winnings for 2 majors any time :)

While that's true winning two majors, and three in a row is almost as impressive in my opinion. In Liquids "short era" Astralis weren't at all those events. However i think Liquid still would have dominated in that period. We will see who the clear #1 is for now at Blast Copenhagen. And we'll know for sure at pro league finals.

 | 
United States Insertidd1 
Yes, there’s not a big event for around a month after New York, liquid will have plenty of time to get their game back together, it’s been like a month and a half since the break ended and liquid don’t look like their normal selves. There are rumors that -NAF +autimatic is coming soon and if they have a disappointing result at BLAST and Beijing then I wouldn’t be surprised if it happens. If liquid don’t do well at either of those events then I will he absolutely sure they are not number one, I am still holding out hope until then lol
2019-10-11 03:51
#332
 | 
Denmark grindz 
Agreed. I hope Liquid will keep NAF tbh always respected him as a player. IEM Beijing is for sure gonna be an interesting event. Astralis do have some Pro league matches here the 14th of October which they really have to qualify for. Same with Liquid in NA pro league. But I’m sure we’ll have some banger matches here at the end of this year.

Yeah I can’t wait for November/December, all the teams will have time to get their top form up and we should get to see some amazing matchups between Liquid/Astralis/EG I’m really looking forward to how all 3 of these #1 contenders will be matching up against each other in the upcoming events

2019-10-07 20:41
So your logic you need to win tournaments to stay in 1op 10 are you stupid it's all about placement at big tournaments you can't win every tournament you attend and the liquid argument is so stupid I don't want to even explain it first learn proper English

That's true but to be fair, Avangar came second in the Major exactly a month ago. All of the best CS teams in the world spent months qualifying, practising and preparing. Avangar came second in the world after all that. The fact that people are surprised they're in the top 5 a month later is laughable.

It's toggle time baby. Honestly. Look at individual performance changes when roosters are changed. It's a nice time to hide aimbot tweaking, as you can point at rooster changes being the reason. Boooh me, do whatever. This is how it works. Teams exploding at rooster changes. First Astralis, now TL. And I strongly suspect Fnatic want a piece of the pie these days where the prize pools are much bigger than in their ERA. It's business after all. Competition is secondary.

Why does this deserve a news article? Danish site confirmed.
2019-10-07 19:19
they liquid or other teams got ranked 1st they never made something for them but hey when its about astralis sure...
2019-10-07 19:20
lul, you are like "here you go"
2019-10-07 19:51
I have a feeling he said that ironically, but judging by his name he might not be that smart.
2019-10-07 20:18
they did the same thing when Liquid did it. To reclaim no.1 today is a lot bigger than in 2017 where people kept switching #1 positions. Ever since 2018, FaZe was #1. The only teams to be in the top ranking since then were Astralis and Liquid so it's a pretty big deal now to be ranked no.1
2019-10-07 19:29
I disagree. Liquid toppled an era. Astralis didn't even make the final of the latest tournament.

Soo, your point is? They shouldn't be #1 because they didn't win the tournament? :D They won the major which surely helped a lot on the points.
2019-10-07 19:34
My point is and always has been that it doesn't deserve a news article.
2019-10-07 19:35
True but Liquid originally also claimed the number 1 spot without winning the tournament. They got #1 and a week later won their first big international tournament.

2019-10-07 19:45
Top 3 is close. There was a story, that Astralis was better prepared for the travel and jet lag than the other 5 teams that took part in previous tournament. They were the only ones to make it past group stage. So Liquid and EG were exhausted. They will be more ready for the next one and anyone can win, Fnatic too. The top of CSGO will be more interesting now, than before the Major. Good for all.

2019-10-07 21:02
+1 I understand why Fnatic went up so much, and that vitality went up too, but it doesn't make sense that Astralis gained like 100+ points for coming 3-4th. Also how the fuck did EG GAIN points for coming 13-16th????? They gained 16 points. How??
2019-10-07 21:30
Honored top 1, all the same, they took the major 2 times this year, and also blast in addition, and went through all tournaments at least until the semi-finals or finals.
2019-10-07 21:05
Nope, not in ESL Pro League Finals or Blast Miami for example. But I'd hardly count their 3rd and 4th places in the Blast tournaments as semi final though. They've had an okey year. Would've been better if they actually played some relevant tournaments instead of mainly attending Blast.
2019-10-07 21:47
2 Major in 19 influenced their top 1, they deserve it, now they are not far from Liquid, we will see what awaits us next, in recent months Astralis is a cut above Liquid.
2019-10-08 09:18
I'm not saying anything about their placement in the ranking, I'm just saying that what you said in your comment isn't true.
